I keep A/B'ing my Fender Telecaster AV 64 and Classic series 60s and actually prefer the Mexican I don't want to open a can of worms, I have been on TDPRI enough to know that this kind of threads have been started maybe too much times. But my MIM is actually a better overall guitar: I know and I can feel the superior quality of the components of the 64 (wood, pickups, electronics, finish - at least for some people) but I repeat: the overall feeling is way better on the MIM. I also own an AV52 Telecaster and A/B'ing it vs the MIM...well, I have no doubt here! The 52 wins hands down in every respect, it is simply a great, great guitar. And it seems to have been built around my hands. It is "perfect" to me. Have you experienced something similar? And - that is my question - would you trade the 64 for a different flavoured guitar? I own two acoustics and four teles, and am thinking about a direct trade for a LP Junior or something as punk-y as it (SG Jr maybe?). Here she is, posing in my much missed Parisian flat, sporting a one-ply pickguard (the original mint green is back now). And before a setup (look at that saddles!!) Cheers.
